for corporate environments that demand efficiency, but also a great choice for power users who massively
access data on the server.
DS408 is compatible with Windows ADS. Windows domain users are able to access data shared from DS408
when they pass the Active Directory authentication. This will greatly save your time on creating large amount of
accounts for the domain users.
IP Camera Video Recording
When connecting IP cameras to the network and recording the videos to the DS408, Surveillance Station
provides you an economical network video recording solution. On Surveillance Station , you can watch the
camera-monitored area on a real-time basis, and also view and manage the recorded video clips. Feel free to
choose either the continuous or motion-detection recording mode that best fits your need.
Flexible Storage Management
DS408 allows you to create RAID 0, RAID 1, or RAID 5 volume on it. Also DS408 has the flexibility to assemble
smaller hard drives first, and expand RAID 1 or RAID 5 volume by replacing existing hard drives with larger ones
one by one when the budget is allowed. When the hard drives on DS408 are full, you can expand more storage
simply by attaching an external hard drive to the USB port of DS408.
